The Vatican Film Library and its journal, Manuscripta, have organized the annual Saint Louis Conference on Manuscript Studies since 1974 -- now marking its 41st anniversary! It is the longest running conference in North America devoted exclusively to medieval and Renaissance manuscript studies. The two-day program each year offers sessions on a variety of themes relating to medieval book production, distribution, reception, and transmission -- paleography, codicology, illumination, textual transmission, library history, cataloguing, and more. Suggestions for papers and sessions are welcome and should be sent to vfl@slu.edu.
